Virginia Steigerwald

Director of Communications

Virginia Steigerwald graduated from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in 2013 with a degree in Architectural Studies. She worked for just over a year as an Architectural Assistant, enjoyed the marketing side of the business, and evidentially made the transition into marketing in the AEC industry.

Virginia is so grateful for the opportunity to have joined Nitsch Engineering’s Marketing team in 2015, not only because she has learned so much, but the company has provided her the space to grow into her current position as Marketing and Proposal Specialist. She has also learned a lot from her SMPS Boston peers and through SMPS’s resources and events. Virginia focuses primarily on proposals by working closely with technical staff and clients to pull together great proposals for exciting jobs. Between internal and external marketing projects, there are a lot of moving parts and deadlines – but it keeps her on her toes and in the end, she really enjoys the collaboration.

Virginia is currently the Director of the Communications Committee. She’s been involved with the committee since 2015 and has loved being a part of SMPS Boston’s communications!

Virginia joined SMPS when she joined Nitsch Engineering, saying that “it really wasn’t an option to not join.” Nitsch knows the value of being a member of SMPS, so she was strongly encouraged to join as soon as she was ready. SMPS has made multiple beneficial impacts on Virginia’s career, such as the ability to continue learning about the industry through educational events, growing her network and making friends in the industry through networking events and through joining a committee; and she’s been able to grow professionally through her involvement on a committee.

In her free time, Virginia loves to run, and she does it outside all year (yes, even on cold February mornings as long as the sidewalks are clear). She also enjoys snow skiing, waterskiing, golfing, and hikes/nature walks.
